i’ve been thinking about all those posts about “we need female heroes who do girly things”/”why is the female hero always such a tomboy” and then the response posts that are like “uhhh actually we don’t really have any really masculine female heroes either” so i was trying to…

Things to think about when creating characters.

When I find myself in times of trouble, because I don’t wanna re-read a book to read it’s sequel, Mother Mary comes to me.

Speaking words of wisdom: there’s a blog called the Recaptains that summarizes all the important points of books so you don’t have to reread a book for the sequel. 

You’re welcome.

Do not discourage children from reading because you feel they are reading the wrong thing. Fiction you do not like is a route to other books you may prefer. And not everyone has the same taste as you.

so my friend and i just started a blog that’s basically tortall and emelan characters texting each other. like, the kind of things they’d text if they really were just modern american teenagers. if you like the books and you’re at all interested, i’d love it if you’d check it out. it’s called “mithros, mynoss and smartphones!" (or "mms" for short).

this is my new favorite blog

So here is some news about my next project that I have that just went up in Publishers Marketplace! Courtney Summers’s PLEASE REMAIN CALM, an e-novella sequel to her zombie novel THIS IS NOT A TEST, about the remaining survivors from the first novel, discovering just how high the cost of death is in a post-apocalyptic landscape, to Sara Goodman at St. Martin’s, by Amy Tipton at Signature Literary Agency (World English). I think THIS IS NOT A TEST is the novel I get the most sequel requests for and I honestly don’t know what those characters did to deserve that after the hell I put them through, but I’m grateful for the expressed interest in the ones who made it out—yes, you will see familiar faces—and all the terrible things that might happen to them next.  (Things are going to get very bad.)  (MORE ZOMBIES!)  I’ll share more details when I have them.  But I am very excited and I hope you are too.  I am so glad my editor and agent didn’t blink the first time I told them I wanted to write zombies or the second time, either.BY THE WAY.  If you haven’t read THIS IS NOT A TEST, there’s no time like the present!  It’s about a girl named Sloane who intends to kill herself the morning the zombie apocalypse starts.  She ends up trapped in her high school with six other survivors instead.  Think THE WALKING DEAD meets THE BREAKFAST CLUB.  (I might be biased but I think it is a great read if are waiting on S5 of TWD.)  You can find out more about it—excerpt, reviews, book trailer—at http://courtneysummers.ca/novels/this-is-not-a-test Oh heck how about I just give away some copies right here too?  How about 3 signed copies of THIS IS NOT A TEST plus signed bookmarks to 3 winners!  This giveaway is open to entrants worldwide and to enter, all you have to do is reblog this post.  I will give one additional entry to followers of summerscourtney, too. Winners will be randomly selected and must have a way for me to contact them or new winners will be selected.  The contest will end June 30th, 2014!
